"At Internationella Engelska Skolan I am getting a good education that really prepares me for the future. I chose Internationella Engelska Skolan because of the school's focus on the English language, and I really enjoy becoming better and better at English. I also like the strict rules the school has; they create a relaxed working environment and make it easier for me to focus on my schoolwork. The teachers at Internationella Engelska Skolan are really good too – knowledgeable, friendly, engaged, and fun!"
Simon, Y9 student
"As a native English speaker, the opportunity to be able to teach something I am passionate about in my own language is wonderful. For me, Internationella Engelska Skolan is a school where teachers can teach and students can learn. I spend very little time on disciplinary work, because the rules are so clear. The students are relieved to have guidelines - they know what is expected of them and what to expect from the teachers, they know that we do not tolerate bullying and they feel that the environment is conducive to learning."
Ms. Emma Eyre, Art teacher
"I chose Internationella Engelska Skolan because of their focus on creating a peaceful and inspiring environment for us students, and also because my older sister goes there and spoke very highly of the school. Every lesson is well planned and the teachers are all easy to connect to and get in touch with. I especially like the food. I always have a choice and if I don't like any of the dishes that are being served, there is always milk and cereals. My expectations were very high when I started at Internationella Engelska Skolan, and I am very happy to say that all my expectations have been met."
Hugo, Year 7 student
"I believe that it is important for children to have a solid knowledge of English in order to prepare them for future studies. I also find that it is good for everyone to have structure and a clear-cut set of rules to follow by. Internationella Engelska Skolan provides both of these things. The teachers are knowledgeable, engaged, and easy to get in touch with. There is orderliness in the school and our children's English has really improved. We are very happy that we chose Internationella Engelska Skolan."
